    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Atkins.

    Interview

    Two step interview:
    step 1: phone call- briefly ran through the application, then asked some motivation questions.

    step 2: Assessment day
    Invited for a grouped assessment day. We had to work in various teams and often had to voice our opinions on tasks that were handed to us. Then invited for a 1 on 1 interview where they ran through our application and asked further questions in regards to the job.

Company Updates

  • Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin group, recently implemented a new software system, Clear Assured, to help measure our progress towards achieving our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (ED&I) objectives, in the UK & Europe regions. Clear Assured is a software platform that will learn our ED&I culture and objectives to help us achieve our goals as well as provide stakeholders with activities, information and templates to support them in their ED&I journey. It’s also a national accredited standard, owned and developed by the Clear Company in the UK​. This means that in addition to measuring our progress, Clear Assured will independently assess it on a quarterly basis. Depending on the outcome of the assessment, we’ll be awarded one of four different types of accreditations: Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum.

  • We've just enhanced our digital world with Recite Me – an online accessibility tool that will help you get the most out of your career journey with us. If websites sometimes feel like hurdles to you, these new functionalities will help you research and apply for our most relevant, aspirational roles wherever you are in the world. At Atkins, we value the distinct perspectives our people bring. So, we're committed to welcoming talented candidates from diverse and neurodiverse groups. We're continually challenging ourselves to make our culture, workspaces and policies more inclusive. And how we communicate off and online is an essential part of that.
